By a show of hands: Who always wanted a nanny just like Mary Poppins?
I did, because this fascinating character has the magical ability to make order out of chaos. She can speak to birds and is always up for a surprise. And on top of it all, she dances tap! MARY POPPINS is a timeless story full of magic and fantasy, and it is very much contemporary despite having been written in 1934. The fact that the nanny has a stronger bond to the Banks’ children than their own father might as well be a tale of the 21st century.
In any case, if I was to ever meet Mary Poppins in real life, I wanted to make a good impression. Call me a geek, but I memorized this 34 letter nonsense word by heart… Now, all these years later, the character from my childhood is going to appear on stage to sing the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious song. What a blast!
Apart from the catchy songs and (tap) dancing, I am excited to see the award winning choreography in MARY POPPINS The Musical. (Many reviewers around the world have praised the stage design.) So, who else wants to re-discover this classic childhoodtalemadeintoDisneymovieandnowamusical?
